Axl Rose Didn't Speak To Brian Johnson About AC/DC Gig

(Classic Rock) Axl Rose didn't speak to Brian Johnson before taking over the role of fronting AC/DC. But the Guns N' Roses leader says it was only because he couldn't find the time to make perfect arrangements before the Rock Or Bust shows kicked off at the weekend (May 7).

He was confirmed as stand-in vocalist for the Aussie giants after Johnson was warned he'd suffer permanent hearing loss if he continued to perform. The band experienced negative reactions over the way they dealt with the split, but they've insisted they didn't fire Johnson.

Rose tells NME: "I have not spoken with Brian. We haven't spoken much about Brian. There hasn't been any negative talk with the guys or anything - it's just the time schedule of having to get things together for the shows, while I also had Guns N' Roses commitments, and then breaking the foot.

"The day I found out it was broken I left the hospital to rehearse. My only day off was the surgery day, and the next day was back to rehearsals." Read more here.
